This recipe is from Slim's Last Chance in Seattle, Washington. I know it sounds like Slim passed after eating this dish but Slim, whereever he may be, did not end it all after eating this chili.
- 1 cup olive oil, divided
- 5 cups onions, diced
- 1⁄2 cup garlic, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup serrano pepper, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup jalapeno, chopped
- 5 lbs pork shoulder, diced into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 quart chicken broth
- 20 anaheim chilies
- 15 tomatillos
- 3 tablespoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon Mexican oregano
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄2 cup masa harina
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add olive oil. Stir in the onion, garlic, serrano and jalapeno peppers and cook until soft. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Place the pork shoulder in a large heavy bottomed pot, coated with oil, over medium heat and sear until well browned on all sides. Deglaze with the chicken broth, and then add sauteed onions and peppers. Turn heat to low, cover and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the Anaheim peppers on a sheet pan. Peel the outer paper skins off the tomatillos, then coat with olive oil and place on another sheet pan. Place both pans in the preheated oven and roast until the peppers are nicely charred and the tomatillos are soft, about 20 minutes.
- Remove pans from the oven and place the peppers in a plastic bag to let them steam for 5 minutes. Peel and seed peppers, and then puree them with the tomatillos in a food processor. Add the puree to the pork mixture, stir, and then let simmer on low heat.
- Combine the garlic powder, black pepper, ground cumin, Mexican oregano, ground coriander and salt in a small bowl, then add to pork mixture and stir well.
- In a small saute pan, mix 1/2 cup olive oil with the corn flour, stirring over low heat for 2 minutes to make a masa roux.
- Let the chili mixture simmer for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours on medium-low heat, or until pork is nice and tender. Then stir in masa roux and simmer for 10 more minutes.
This recipe is outstanding. It's some work but it's worth it. I have made it multiple times everyone has loved it
